We all looked after by Alex Cavanaugh and his trusty co hosts Ronel Janse van Vuuren, Mary Aalgaard, Madeline Mora-Summonte, and Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor!

Sorry I missed last months 😦 in the past month I have almost re written my novel and resubmitted it to the publisher and I am wading through a two week wait for feedback… I’ve also been trying to plot book 2 and failing I brought a book but I think my problem is I don’t have a central hero which I think is making everything so much harder! am i writing from different POVs like my current novel or can I keep it all one story. Why can’t I just bloody write it!? though most of it is already written then look for advice. BUT I don’t want to have to go through everything again that I have with this one!

Why do novels need structure!? Because aren’t I telling a story? and if I was to make up a story and have to read it aloud off the top of my head I wouldn’t be worrying about plotting and structure!!!

This months question:

 It’s been said that the benefits of becoming a writer who does not read is that all your ideas are new and original. Everything you do is an extension of yourself, instead of a mixture of you and another author. On the other hand, how can you expect other people to want your writing, if you don’t enjoy reading? What are your thoughts?

So pre being brought a kindle I did write something that was full of teen angst!!! a YA I hear you ask!

As I heard on a podcast every story written these days is combining themes. In the beginning mine was the love of the bill and spooks in the modern day.

Reading C L Taylor and Mark Edwards re ignited my want to write, so would I have ever got this back if I hadn’t of been brought a kindle!? Plus I’m writing crime and from reading ALOT of Cally I can’t really see how my work is a mixture of hers or in the fact Marks?

I was always told at school, my spelling and grammar issues were because I didn’t read much..

Maybe we should just stop worrying and thinking about it all and just write…
